how will president obama talk about this today. >> steve: president obama pulls ahead in polls and winning swing states . but there is a powerful group of americans that are leaning to romney and they could turn the difference. >> brian: how do you turn grown businessmen like brawling children. put them in the middle of rush hour and a cab. it could have been the cash cab. fox and friends starts right now. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> gretchen: it is about time member captured that on videotape. go outside to 6th avenue on rush hour is see that happen
3:02am
daily. >> brian: i know someone who said the un building is located and turns out the world has come and you can't get a cab or walk the streets. if you go by war wick. ahmadinejad you put up tent poles and it is it like a war zone. >> steve: usually takes me five minutes to go here to exit new jersey yesterday it was 45 minutes and it was not even today when the united states is speaking to the general assembly and things are going to move. >> brian: and the curtain initiative. >> gretchen: we should have stayed home. darn we are here. top level meeting between u.s. and egypt since anti-american protestors stormed our embassy. secretary of state meeting with president morsi. morsi assured clinon that protecting the embassy was the

duty. nato troops spoiling the insider attack. special ops team arresting to afghans that are planning to attack a coalition base. first time nato thwarted an insider attack that kill would 51 troops. disturbing discovery. in addition to the marijuana-heroin and prescription drugs. three kids, too. 8, 7, and 5 . trapped in the trunk. they got suspicious when they heard a thumping sound. they hadn't eaten since the night before. the cops arrested the 28 year old mom and her fiance. >> two grown men in suit. duking it out on a cab in new

york city. >> and finally one man prevailed and not because the loser gives a smack on the hid. >> steve: keep the tip. everyone will know who they are. >> steve: i believe that is park avenue. one of the swankiest neighbors. >> brian: they get angry, too. >> steve: just a couple of blocks past park avenue from where we are sitting is united nations and later in the general assembly the president will go down and deliver a speech. 10:00 a.m.. we have excerpts and he will say there are no words of excusing the killing of innocents and the attacks on the embassy. >> gretchen: ahmadinejad creating havoc in new york
3:05am
city. have you heard of a guy who can hymn here and go to the hotel and go to the un and speech gobbily goop and offensive to most people? so instead of announcing he flashed the peace sign and saying he want to wipe israel off of the map it is now eliminated. it is the same thing. >> brian: this is mitt romney. remember 60 minutes and they sat down half an hour one with scott pel yemitt cross. mitt romney noticed that the president of the united states when he talked about the uprisings in the middle east and killing in libya called it bumps in the road. the governor of massachusetts was aggressive. >> he said the developments in
3:06am
the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah, that was my reaction. we had an bass-- ambassor assassinated and 20,000 people killed in syria. and trouble in pakistan and iran is that much closer to have a capacity to build a nuclear weapon. these are not butches in the road but human lives. >> steve: hold the phone, the white house said mr. romney misinterperted what the president intended. he referred to israel as one of our closest alley? come on. eric cantor, the house majority said for israel is on parwith other alies in the
3:07am
region is very concerning. >> gretchen: why is the president of the united states not meeting with world leaders. they're right here in new york . it is convenient and frankly what presidents do. many people say he doesn't want to create any bumps. you know any kind of conversation that might take them off track 42 days from the election. instead of meeting with the egyptian leader president morsi, he sends secretary of state hillary clinton to meet with him ahead and cancelled the so-called meeting. >> brian: i don't understand. i would think that the advantage is president of the united states. and go behind closed doors. he met with 13 leaderships last year. you get a general tone and go to the next room. you can look like he is in charge. he could go to a meet issue statements that he laid it on the line and he told people of
3:08am
tunisia and government of sudan and president of egypt this, this, this. i think that is more effective than any 30 second ad. >> gretchen: you can't trust the other leaders and that would create a news story and some sort of a story line he doesn't want right now. >> brian: yeah, henry indicated that, too. i don't think there is a mistake in showing leadership. we are used to other countries not arguing. >> steve: i see the other network newscast. last year he met with 13 world leaders and this year none because he is running for president and more concerned with the reelection than foreign policy. we told you yesterday he visited the ladies of the vieww . what did he say yesterday when visiting the ladies of the view. he said he was just the eye
3:09am
candy. >> brian: big news happy birthday barbara walters. >> steve: she's only 83? >> gretchen: i hope it gets interesting play. it was startling to me based on what you hear when you watch the cand dates on the campaign trail. talking about romney and obama. could mitt romney get more middle class families. 55 percent to 41 percent. why am i surprised at this? it was the campaign rhetoric from president obama that he is the guy for the middle class. it is romney who is rich and doesn't understand you and can't relate to makes it seem like you shouldn't vote for him? it is startling, by 14 points mitt romney has them. >> steve: middle class is worried about the bred and butter and pocket issues and look at behind the issues in
3:10am
the battle ground university poll where mitt romney is with middle class families, leading by 14 percent. only a third of them said we are heading in the right direction. >> brian: yeah, the president on the couch on the view and that couch is not as clean as ours. >> gretchen: i think it might be cleaner. >> brian: i think any couch is cleaner. on the view on the couch. he said i have a different view from mitt romney. i will build it from middle out. i don't know if that is economically what about the polls that has the president winning in small margin. dick morris answered that question. >> people need to understand that the polling is the worst it has ever been. this is the first election if i tell you who is going to
3:11am
vote, i can tell you how they are going to vote. black or latino or college kid or single mother, i will tell you how you can vote and over 65 or a man or married white womi am be right two out of three times. this is the issue who is going to vote. polling is good at saying how. but bad at saying who will vote. and the models they are using are crazy. they assume a democratic edge of 6-sevenpoints >> chris: that's the key. if they are using the metric where there are six or sevenmore percent they tend to win the poles. they are taking rasmussen metric and they and pew were
3:12am
closest to being right. and they analyzed the data and according to these folks, mitt romney has 5-11 percent in all of the other polls. ing interesting. >> gretchen: if you are conducting polls why not split it 50-50. why would you skew it. >> steve: rasmussen figured out in the latest poll. 30.67 percent of the country considers them republican. you start with that number and put the democrats and add the appropriate margin of independents that is. >> brian: 100 percent of the american people don't want to be polled. >> gretchen: maybewe should do this instead of polls. halloween mask. president obama out pacing mitt romney.
3:13am
here is a sports one. >> brian: if the redskins win. and they beat the panthers. president obama will win and that should be a good game. >> steve: you know what, if you use the 7-11 metric which you go into the store and you get a red cup for the republican and blue cup for the democrat, as you can see right there president obama slightly mr. romney. >> brian: and if we could get ahold of one themselves. there is the rigt cup and blue cup. who actually wins. >> gretchen: how is this for the parent's nightmare. a little boy given meth instead of his regular medicine. >> brian: i hear about from

♪ >> steve: president obama has been out on the campaign claims higher taxes from the rich will help pay down the national debt. >> we have to ask the wealthiest households to pay to ask folks like you and me to do more. folks who afford it like me can pay more. i can afford to pay more and mitt romney can afford to pay more. >> brian: will that get our fiscal house back in order.
3:18am
stewart varney are here. if the rich pay more will that help. >> no. not much at all. let me spell it out. if you follow lieu the president's plan to tax the so-call would wealthy and get rid of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy people. you bringg in 87 billion dollars. with a deficit of a trillion plus, you still have a 900 billion dollarr deficit and if you have a trillion dollar deficit. it brings in 8divide million from the rich and you still have 913 billion of red ink . and you can crazy and trash the millionaires and take every red cent they earn . every millionaire will have the entire income confiscated.
3:19am
you trash the institution and confiscate the red cent and you bring in 839 billion. >> steve: you are way short. >> brian: we are short a trillion every year. >> you don't have a taxing problem. this is a spending problem. it is solved by reducing spend reforming entitlements over the long term. taxing the rich will make barely any difference . it is a political slogan. >> steve: right now the president wants to get reelected so he has the key to air force one. >> he thinks that if you tax the rich that brings in votes. >> steve: we are talking about increasing the taxes on the rich. what people forget about. taxes for everyone are scheduled to go up next year. >> yes, they will. >> steve: everybody is going to get whacked.
3:20am
>> if you made a list of all of the taxes that go up on january 1st because of obama care and tax changes. that list would fill three screens and everybody is going to be paying more. everybody. >> steve: it is interesting. >> brian: we want you to look at what the president said over the weekend. the deficit is not his fault. it was prescription drug plan and two wars put on the credit card. >> steve: did you give him an assignment. >> it is an easy assignment mr. kilmeade. i will do it. >> steve: straight ahead. surgeons in the united states operate on the wrong body part. life saving tips to make sure it doesn't happen to you, coming up. >> brian: it looks good on a post card . california is going belly up and people are getting out of

450 billion dollars. gretch? >> gretchen: here is a shocking state. 98,000 people die each year in this country because of doctor's mistakes. surgeons are often operating on the wrong body part 40 times a week. how can you prevent that? >> i think it is time for public and people to know what is going on and also choose the right doctor. over the years, doctors and surgeons have gone without having a real score card and like a gag order and they are really scared because attorneys get involved. and minute they turn someone sends a letter to their office and scares them. there is a gap between the doctors and parents and going
3:26am
back to transparency and trusting your doctor is great. there are hibits to help that. >> gretchen: on line dash board. but what does it mean in this case? >> it means every president in the u.s. puts in information about the hospital. how many cases do they v. and cases in the operating room for public to see. and procedures, how many doctors are doing what type of procedures and patient satisfaction they have. if you want to go for gall bladder or knee surge yee go through and pick the place for yourself . the ones with not good outcome have to push hard yer go back. >> gretchen: next one i will combine because of safety scores and open notes transparency. what is that.
3:27am
>> with all of the electronic medical records, patients can look at the notes and make their own ponentments . they'll know what is going on . that is access to the record. team work and score one. there is something in the hospital called time out. the nurse will call for a time-out. operating for a right side and surgeon and nurses all have to sign off and that reduced the number of complications. but numbers that you mention that is not acceptable. >> gretchen: final one is cameras. when they set up cameras and the people knew doing colon oscopeys they improve pent more time doing the procedures. >> two types of cam ras. one for a colon oscopey and put it on the dvd and give it to the patients.
3:28am
the other one is cameras all over the hospitals. and patients expose who is looking at the film and it is safety issues there. and for the most part up to the hospitals and doctors to do the best you can for the patients . they have to be all wary of this and they can go on on line. and it is a great thing of good doctors. >> all comes down to quality. mistake at the pharmacy nearly kills a child. how a child was given meth and not his his medicine. happy birthday to will smith. ♪ ♪

road. yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? we had an abam doss assassinated. we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 people have been killed in syria. we have tumult in pakistan. of course, iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. >> it's worth noting there will be dueling speeches, at least of sorts this morning. 9:00 o'clock. in two hours time eastern, mitt romney is going to be speaking at the clinton global initiative. an hour later, the president will speak at the united nations. it's possible we could see a little overlap. the president and mitt romney speak at the same time a few blocks apart. though in very different forums.
4:05am
>> gretchen: thanks so much. >> steve: what's interesting is last time the president came up for a united nations general assembly, last year he spoke to 13 world leaders. they call them bilateral. this time absolutely none because as you know, as david lee mentioned, he dropped by the couch to talk to the ladies of "the view." there he is pictured this where he referred to himself as the eye candy on the couch. also, we've been talking over the last couple of weeks about how it looked as if we were snubbing israel because netanyahu, when the president was here and when he was here in new york city as well, want to do figure out what to do about iran. mr. netanyahu is not appearing until tomorrow after yom kippur. but he made it clear, look, come to washington. i'd just like to meet with you. >> gretchen: jay carney had this response about why the president will not be having any of those one on one meetings with foreign leaders. >> the president just recently had a conversation with prime
4:06am
minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour, i believe. >> is there something difference between having a phone conversation and meeting and talking to someone in person? >> again, the president will see a number of leaders tonight and tomorrow. but i would make the point that he does not wait for the annual meeting in new york to have meetings with foreign leaders. >> brian: physically, there would be no reason for all these leaders to come in to meet if you could face time them on your ipad, or call them on the phone of the why do they even come to begin with? the whole point of these sessions, at least on the surface, is to meet, establish that relationship and understanding in times of crisis to do that. and i understand the president knows these guys, knows the people in charge. i would think there would be tremendous -- great optics to say i met with the prime minister of egypt, then a week later with israel, then i gave a nasty stare to ahmadinejab in his leisure jacket and sweaty attitude. so i just think that in the big picture, the president missed an opportunity 'cause he's very confident in those situations.
4:07am
>> gretchen: or maybe it's deliberate because they don't want to create any more foreign policy news based on what happened in libya and throughout the middle east. maybe it's a safer bet to not have any of these meetings, 40 some days before the election. >> brian: september 23, and the "new york times," if you were reading that out loud to your children, which might be entertaining for them on a sunday morning, they said you would find out that the president had canceled his meeting with the new leader of egypt. i also read the egyptian leader canceled on us. i don't know if you break up with me, i'm going to break up with you first. i'm not sure how that went down of the but they're not meeting. >> steve: because the president isn't meeting with any of the world leaders. hillary clinton is having to pick up the slack there. she's doing all the bilaterals, doing all the talking for our government. one of the interesting thing, and you were watching yesterday, you don't know that the egyptian president, mr. morsi, said he's suddenly got a list of demands for us.
4:08am
among other things, he wants restrictions on u.s. free speech when it comes to criticizing islam. he wants more support for anti-israel governments and gaza and the west bank and wants more money for egypt to buy food for their 80 million people. he wants a lot, but doesn't sound like he's willing to give much. >> gretchen: why does he feel comfortable giving those demands? to me, that's the story. >> steve: you can always ask. >> gretchen: well, but they didn't in the past. why? i think they understood the relationship between egypt and the united states. remember, just a week ago the president of this country said he wasn't sure if egypt was an ally or an enemy. to me, that gives that president the power then to start if i neagleing and changing the rules in the way we have handled our relationship with this country for decades. >> brian: maybe he does no ant to be in a situation where he has to answer all those questions and come up and look like somebody who is receiving those demands. like you were saying earlier, gretchen. i thought it was also interesting, today is a left handed compliment.
4:09am
he said he would like to thank the president for acting decisively helping remove the autocratic pro western government. that's like an excuse me? you're helping us remove the pro western government. the other thing is, he actually went to graduate school at usc. it this guy. >> steve: but mr. morsi also is a member of the muslim brotherhood. right now one of the things the muslim brotherhood would like to do is get rid of that 1979 peace deal between egypt and israel. we love that deal. we don't want to get rid of it. >> brian: he also is not the morsi who sang with the smiths. that's morrisy. >> gretchen: let's do some headlines now. one of britain's most notorious extremists could be deported within weeks. the court of human rights ruling radical muslim cleric and four other suspected terrorist can be extradited on terrorism charges. al masri tried to isn't an al-qaeda training camp in oregon. u.s. tried to gm them extradite for years, but it was delayed

4:16am
whistle is aimed refuse to acknowledge it. it is there, it's been part of our politics. we thought it was gone. it's back and being used to get votes. >> steve: but our next guest says racism would be dead if it weren't for the may stream media. ann coulter is the author of a new book. she joins us live today. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: the book is great. it tells the history of race relations in this country. >> yes. the democrats have a lot to be apologetic about. >> steve: they really do because the way you lay it out, lbj seems to get all the credit for signing the civil rights act. it was actually eisenhower who got the ball rolling. >> yeah. and for 100 years after the civil war fought by republicans to end slavery, it's republicans constantly introducing civil rights bills that were blocked by democrats? why is it that the 1964 civil rights act is treated as if it's the only civil rights act in u.s. history? because that was the first one in history ever pushed by a democrat.
4:17am
and by the way, lbj, when he was a senator, opposed the 1957 and 1960 civil rights act being pushed by eisenhower and nixon. and if i could just say about chris matthews, as curious as that clip, he cites all the black people coming up to him and cites black people in other country whom he refers to as african-americans. that's because here in america, he doesn't have any black friends. he doesn't have any black neighbors. his son, i have the url and the book, there is a big picture of his son's wedding. 100 people in the church. not a black face in the group. any republican with the facts of chris matthews life would be convicted of racism in two seconds. he's a race bean counter for every tea party, every republican gathering. he doesn't have any black friends! >> steve: you talk in your book about how the left plays the race card to keep the black community. >> yes. yes. i mean, step one is tell black people that republicans hate them for 100 years.
4:18am
actually only since i guess the democrats finally started to come on around the mid '60s. once the civil rights battles were won, you have liberals play acting against nonexistent racism and telling the world that republicans and tea partiers are racist. step two is taunt republicans for not having more blacks in their party. >> steve: sure. you start in the '70s -- historically, and then you go through the '70s at great length. then you talk about president obama. and you cite in the 2008 race when president obama and his camp played the race card on bill clinton, on john mccain, on sarah palin. >> on poor girl -- girl dean ferraro. >> this was a quick turn around. i realized it was nothing but racial dem gogery. they can't run on obama's record, they can't dig up divorce files on mitt romney. so what's it going to be?
4:19am
race. so i wanted to get the book out quickly. as a result, the jack flap indicates well, obama doesn't really engage in the race baiting. when i actually got to the end of the book and wrote those, there is a lot more than i thought coming directly from the president. >> steve: chapter 16, the media cry racist in a crowded theater. you have a list, kind of a laundry list of things that if you support a certain thing, the media quick to label you a racist. for instance, if i were opposed to obamacare. >> racist. >> steve: if i joined a tea party? >> yes, definitely racist. >> steve: if you're a republican or support gun rights. >> and the word the. don't forget the word the because fox news contributor allen colmes brought the word the up with me on his radio show. the. if you say the blacks, and meanwhile, i mean, you have, for example, and i quote, a whole series of introductions from rachel maday, melissa maris lacewell. this is not a person comfortable
4:20am
around black well. every introduction is, you are wicked smart. you are so smart. you're the smartest -- then, poor nervous white -- white guest chris hayes. good to see you. these are not people who have black friends, who know black people. oh, sorry, except longhorns o'donnel and bill maher who date black gals so they think they're freedom riders. >> steve: read the number one best selling author, ann coulter. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. it's the movie about parents versus public schools with the stories ripped from the headlines. one of the people behind it with advice. then we show you how the president redesigned the american flag. his campaign replacing the stars with a big o. now it has disappeared from the web. how did that happen? we're not going to ask. ann coulter. she's got her theories. i'm jessica simpson and i'm doing weight watchers.

4:26am
general, is designed to serve the interests of powerful adults, powerful adult special interests at the expense of parents, kids, and the rest of us. and that if we really intend to change things, to make education serve the interests of children not as a political slogan or sound bite, but as a reality, the only way we're going to do that is stop playing on the other side's home turf where lobbyists and political action committees buy influence and transfer raw political power to parents because parents are the only ones who only care about kids. everyone cares about kids. but parents only care about kids. >> gretchen: raw, political power. what a powerful line. i love that. and you are helping parents do that. what did you do in california? >> in california, about three, 3 1/2 years ago we passed a revolutionary new law called the parent trigger. fundamentally what the parent trig accident occur is it let's parents transform their schools through community organizing. if a parent is trapped in a
4:27am
systemically failing school, if half the parents sign a petition, they can either fire half of the people and bring in new staff or new leadership, they can turn into a charter school, or they can use this as power to bargain with the special interests that usually make decisions behind closed doors and shut parents out and tell them to go do a bake sale. >> gretchen: the interesting thing is, the parent trigger law is what's featured in this movie that comes out. although they call it the fail safe law. but same thing about this raw political power. tell me what drawing in the mow halfy desert now. >> some parents came to us, a rural school in the middle of the mohave desert. it's been failing for a generation and failing because it's the school where all of the ineffective teachers had been dumped in the school district 'cause you can't fire teachers for the most part. so these parents organized. they got 70% of the parents of their school to sign an historic
4:28am
parent trigger petition, the first in america to succeed. and what they faced from the powerful defenders of the status quo who bullied them, lied to them. the parents even caught them forging documents to stop the parents from transforming their school, all of this to defend the school where 70% of the kids graduate unable to read, write, or do basic math at grade level. that is -- if that's not a proof point that the system is designed to serve the interest of powerful adults and not kids, i don't know what is. >> gretchen: your mission is to give the power back to the parents. you're part of parent revolution. ben austin, thanks so much for your time. the movie is "won't back down." coming up, forget foreign policy, the president is busy taking in "the view" and says what happened in libya was bumps in the road and about the arab spring. does he have it right or wrong? tony blair here with his perspective.

>> brian: you always say, you wrote in your book is we want to be liked. we'll never be liked. >> we're all like that. we all prefer to be liked. but then -- >> brian: just to follow up on that. we're watching that happen and we're wondering if we're projecting as a country, and you've been there so many times, are we projecting a vulnerability and a weakness today as opposed to in the recent past? >> i don't believe so myself. i think most people understand america -- >> brian: they think so? >> no, i don't think they do think so, but i think whereas before in a way they were kind of waiting for us to shape their societies, in a sense, because of all these revolutions that are going on, there is turmoil across the region, they'll have to shape their own destiny. >> gretchen: what's the point of the general assembly? you know why i'm asking? because the u.s. taxpayers support the u.n. more than any other country. millions and millions of dollars. so what's the point of having this general assembly for two
4:48am
weeks unless foreign leaders are going to get together and have meetings? >> brian: good for the hotels. >> gretchen: it gives people an opportunity, they all come to various meetings, clinton initiative that takes place. when i look at my own position and what i'm doing here this week, i'll be able to see certain people i otherwise wouldn't. >> steve: it's good to have you. one of the reasons we even talk about they're doing -- having phone consultations is because a couple of weeks ago, apparently the country of israel called our state department and said, mr. netanyahu would like to get together with the president while they're in town. and that meeting never happened. the white house declined it. even though mr. netanyahu said, i'll net you any place. i'm not coming in 'til kippur. but it's very clear that the country of israel needs a hi sign from the united states. what line does iran have to cross before it's okay to take military action?
4:49am
>> right. i think the line that america has taken, which is to say iran with a nuclear weapon is not acceptable is correct, then you got to stick by it. >> steve: the meter is running. >> the meter is running. and you see from the speech that ahmadinejab, the president of iran made yesterday. they are not -- they haven't altered their position, not on israel and i don't really think on nuclear weapons acquisitions. so we've got to say it and mean it. but i do believe we mean it. >> brian: sanctions aren't work, would you say? >> sanctions could work. negotiations could work. but they only work in circumstances. >> brian: are they working now? n they only work in circumstances where iran knows that if it's not possible to stop them through those means, then all the options remain on the table. and look, that message has been given by your president, by my successor as british prime minister and i believe people do mean it and i think the single biggest danger is that the
4:50am
iranians don't understand, we do mean it. >> gretchen: they apparently are less than a year away from developing a nuclear weapon. >> brian: do you believe that? >> it's incredibly hard to judge. but i think what is clear is they move toward this ambition and so far they have not moved away from it. it's also important for people to understand why this is a problem. it's a problem not just for israel in my view. it's a problem for the whole world because if you do get iran with a nuclear device, first of all, you got a highly unstable irrational regime. and you will spark a national arms race. >> steve: we thank you for dropping by, letting us pick your brain today. thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, cheryl casone has the top five companies hiring now. one of them voted one of the best places to work in the country. hi, cheryl. >> brian: first, on this day in 1976, "play that funky music" by wild cherry was the number one

5:04am
>> look, i think when even you have some of our friends in the traditional more main stream dinosaur media bringing this issue up of friday althoughity, it's a -- frivolity, it's a premature approach when you have all the major world leaders in new york, you send your press secretary out yesterday to say, well, i'm sure he'll see them at various receptions. [ laughter ] this is ridiculous. you have to have a relationship with these people and the "new york times," which is loath to criticize this president, even makes a point of saying, he has not fostered the types of personal relationships that are really required to get us through these really rocky times. he hasn't done that. >> steve: yesterday on "the view" the president did reveal, and it will be broadcast later today -- that he refers to himself as the eye candy. i'm just the eye candy here. so he's busy there at "the view" rather than sitting down with netanyahu sometime this week. as netanyahu would desperately
5:05am
like to know what the united states wants them to do about iran, which wants to blow up israel. >> yeah. i think the bottom line is the president has used entertainment platforms. i wrote about this 2 1/2 years ago in the obama diaries. people thought i was exaggerating. he knows how to use the razzle dazzle and it really propelled him into the presidency in part in 2008. he didn't have a lot of experience, but he was really good with ellen and with oprah and with that whole crowd and he was very likeable. so he thinks now, even despite all of this incredibly tumultous news, economic cliff we're facing, that somehow the razzle dazzle will rescue him again. i think this time it's not going to work. >> gretchen: that's interesting because i'm wondering if it will actually, because do you think that the average american is really listening to the world leaders coming today and does he get a pass in more ways than one
5:06am
by not having these meetings because then he doesn't create any news about it, so then even fewer americans know what's really going on? >> i mean, i think that's what he's hoping, yeah. i guess if nobody discusses it, then yeah, i guess he could get a pass. if romney doesn't make this a huge issue on the campaign trail. i mean, not just saying that the president jumped the gun in talking about the attack in benghazi, spontaneous. not just that. you have to frame this election for the voters. gretchen, you're right. i think so far, maybe we haven't done a very good job of framing this as the president perpetually partying with celebrities when the rest of the country is really in pain. that's how you frame it. that's how you have to do it. if it's not done, you're right. i guess people will say, it's just another nice u.n. meeting. >> brian: 30% of the country voted before election day in 2008. they're already voting now. they're not waiting for the debates. however, you got to think that the president must have had some
5:07am
alarm bells, at least his handlers when you saw how hely e univision forum. if the president repeats that performance october 3, i think he's going nobody a lot of trouble against mitt romney. >> that was one of the more surprising interviews i've seen of president obama ever. and i think he thought he was going in and speaking to friends and when ramos looked at him and said, sir, with all due respect, a promise is a promise. then there was some hang time there. right? the president looked at -- you could tell he was getting annoyed. obama does not like to get pressed on issues and he generally is not. i think they want as many people to vote now as possible because guess what? we don't know how the debates are going to go. once you cast your vote, there is no going back and saying, i don't think obama did very well. i want to change my vote. i don't like this early voting. i never have. >> gretchen: is it people voting who already know, no matter what who they're going to vote for,
5:08am
or you think some of these independents are going to vote early? >> i think, again -- we have to ask why we're pushing this early voting. i thought our civic duty was supposed to be on election day with circumstances for our military, disabled, other people who cannot get to the polls. now it's roll in voting process where the thing is not over yet. people are declaring this election over. i think for a reason. because their guy could very well be in a lot of trouble. republicans have an unbelievable ground game. i just met with the top people of the rnc across this country, that's really not gotten a lot of coverage. but they are register o'clock people to vote and yeah, they're involved in the early voting, too. but i think people who are rushing out to vote before they really see the president has to respond to real questions, i think they're doing themselves a disservice. anything can happen over the next 4040 days and i think you'll see president obama in the hot seat like he's never been before in these first couple of debates.
5:09am
>> steve: i think you're right. a couple of days ago when he was on "60 minutes," while it wasn't back to back, when you saw the president and then you saw mitt romney, i think a lot of people, because mitt romney has been demonized, it's like, wait a minute. i kind of like that guy. >> i think that's right. a lot of folks on twitter, i was tweeting about these dueling interviews. when mitt romney answered the question of what's your big idea? and he did not hesitate. he said, freedom. and now that we're seeing hillary out there yesterday, essentially proposing a global tax on the, quote, elite, mitt romney was exactly right to say our freedom is under attack at every level and my policies are going to be designed to lift everybody up and remind people that without liberty, all of this goes away. i thought that was a brilliant answer and framed the debate very well and he needs to now infuse that with a lot of more specifics, which i think you'll see. >> brian: they've got to use
5:10am
paul ryan that. would help. if he wanted to fully use his number two as opposed to president obama who probably doesn't. let's look at what he wants to do. he wants to tax those who have had it too good for too long. the rich. what will it add up if we take all the money from the rich, the current deficit, if we raise it up to the clinton era levels. the current deficit is over a trillion dollars a year. that's with the proposal he put together. you'd save $87 billion if you raised it to the clinton era levels. the difference is just now you still owe $913 billion and the rich have less money. >> it's completely unserious. and for hillary to get up there and talk, well, she's kinds of laughing through her answer yesterday at that speech. oh, well, we have these really rich people at all of these countries. they don't do anything. she basically said they don't do anything to help the growth in many of these countries. and i say to my sieve, okay. we're going to have a fiscal
5:11am
cliff if we don't do anything about it. we have these taxes hiked up. we have the obamacare taxes about to kick in. now we want to put another tax on top of all of that on the people who we desperately need to spend money and hire people in the united states. if i'm mitt romney, i seize on those remarks today and remind people that we pulled this curtain back on the second obama term and it is truly a freedom killer. i think he has an enormous opportunity. >> gretchen: maybe. but the unfortunate thing in the last couple of years is that to be successful has become a negative. it's almost like the american dream has become a negative. even if you tax successful people in this country at 100%, if they give it all to the government, it doesn't begin o make a dents in the deficit. but my question is, why has the obama campaign been able to be successful at selling this simplistic message and not getting into the details? >> i think republicans become very gun shy about this, instead of standing up for success and
5:12am
capitalism in the free market, they think they have to be softer, like i make money, but i'm a good guy. instead, romney has the great resume. all he has to say is look, i'm really successful. i'm going to help all of you become more successful because it's not the american dream to become a ward of the state. we need to be free of government shackles, free of government controls and lift ourselves up. i'm rich. you're right. i am rich and i want as many of you to become rich as possible and the only way you're going to do that is to do it through the free market and the wonder of american business. obama doesn't know business. i know business. i think he would get people on their feet. republicans have not been great at defending the free market and advocating for it, gretchen. i think we've seen the results of that. >> steve: plus you've got the main stream media seems to be gunning for the president. they're on his side. then you look at all the polls and they seemed to be skewed toward the democrats. that's for next week because you've got to go right now. thank you very much. >> good to see you. >> gretchen: coming up, mistake

there is drugs, there is gangs. >> change the school, you change the neighborhood. >> you really think you can turn this around? >> i can't say for certain. >> 100% yes. >> gretchen: the movie in theaters this friday drawing both praise and backlash for its story line. but is it accurate in its portrayal? let's ask genie allen. she is the founder for education reform. good to sigh. >> good morning. >> gretchen: what did you tell the folks making the movie? >> that they're absolutely right on target. there are thousands of people like the ones in the movie that vote and want to take back their schools. >> gretchen: a lot of criticism is parents aren't involved. we need to get parents to be more active. that's one of your central themes, right? >> absolutely right. but it's not a matter of being active anymore like our parents were at the pta at the school board. it doesn't work. being active really is about taking control and getting real power. finding opportunities not just to change your actual school, but if it's not working, get
5:18am
out, build new schools, engage great teachers, parents that want to do something differently. the school system we have today was created 150 years ago. having more and better learning opportunities for kids is what reform should be about. >> gretchen: why doesn't pta work anymore? is it the union power or what is it? >> over time, people become very comfortable with the status quo. change is really hard. these are really good people around us every day. but they protect what they have because they just can't admit or really understand what's going on outside that might be different. most people think that educators and administrators actually do education policy. they're in schools. they're doing the best they can. they're not exposed to the great things happening outside. so let's bring in innovations. that's why today we've got 6,000 charter schools, many started by parents and teachers, we've got turn around schools as exemplified in this movie. we have people doing extraordinary things in ordinary ways every day. >> gretchen: i think one of the inspirations of the movie is that it's based on real life
5:19am
stories, right? >> absolutely. it's what's really exciting about this film and that a major motion picture production would take it on. this happens all the time. we heard a lot about chicago teachers strikes. we hear a lot about people galvanizing the streets in new york and pennsylvania, but the reality is that's happening every day in communities nationwide. we just don't hear about it. people are fighting for change. they are fighting for reform and the obstacles you'll see in the movie are absolutely 100% right on. >> gretchen: maybe one of those obstacles is like this quote from randy wine garten on the film. this movie could have been a great opportunity to bring parents and teachers together to launch a national movement focused on real teacher and patient collaboration to help all children. instead, this fictional portrayal is divisive and demoralizes millions of great teachers. your response? >> here is what i want to say, randy, flash, that movement is already happening. teachers and parents around the
5:20am
country thanks in no part to the leadership of the national teachers unions have indeed fought for change, taken overt schools and gotten the choices that they need and deserve. they've birthed those babies. >> gretchen: you hope this movie sparks an understanding about what activism is in the mind of a parent who cares about their child so deeply because you say that people who have advocated for this kind of reform before have been intimidated. >> very intimidated. told they're doing the wrong thing, that they just need to give us time. they've been told frankly that they're anti-public education. there is nothing anti-public education about wanting to get the greatest teachers in want of your children and supporting them. >> gretchen: jeannie, thanks so much. >> thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, it looks rile good on a postcard. guess what? california is going belly up and everyone is getting out. we'll tell where you they're going. then, with their backs against the wall, he led his team to one of the most improbable comebacks in sports history. tony larussa on his run to the

5:26am
>> just like asking which one of your dog, cats, kids do you like -- there is no bad moment, but the fact that we were so close many times to being eliminated and to have it end up like it did, it's the most unique out of any of the championships especially. i don't want to disrespect any of them. >> brian: but you wrote the book on this. if i told you on august 25 when your roll started, in the end, it will be game 7 and it will be extra innings and it will be yours, what would you have told me? >> wasn't anywhere in our minds because at that time, we had struggled and we were thinking hey, let's finish over 500. let's finish up this respect we've earned because we had played through a lot of adversity. as we got hotter, then we started adjusting our goals. >> brian: have you figured out how you did it and why you did it? because you're such a student of sports and life, most of your friends are outside baseball. have you figured out why this team won?

>> it's as simple in this era of money ball and all the analytics, it's as simple as will to win, team work. it was great chemistry on that club. they made commitment that they were not going to get finished unless they gave everything they had. as corny as that. there was time after time we could have lost and never gave in, ever, never. even the last strike a couple of times. we pulled it off. >> brian: i mentioned 33 years. he had six pennants, four manager of the year titles, the thing about this book and this team, you had to tell it. in the book, you had to say in the parade right after, guys, meet me in the gym. instead of let's repeat, i retire. how tough was that? >> that was bad because i rained on the parade. i had told some intimates like family and the front office and the ownership that while we were challenging, we weren't going to get distracted. now we have the parade, the rally. the vibes are incredible.
5:28am
and we were going to announce it the next morning, so i had to tell the players. i really, really getted it, but there is no way to do it. i called them in the gym. i said, see you later. they said, good riddance. >> brian: it ended. you ended on top. the only one better might have been michael jordan. if he stayed retired. so we'll see if you stay retired. you work with the league now. go out and get this book if you want to teach your kids never to quit. that's what this is really about. 50 years in baseball, 10 1/2 games back and one final championship season. we'll see new radio. mistake at the pharmacy nearly kills a child. how was a boy given methadone instead of his ritalin? then you remember her from "er." laura tyranny is returning to television on "the good wife." she's here next life

house. >> brian: he can afford another. >> steve: no kidding. >> brian: they asked him a question on "the view" yesterday, what he would do if he loses and i think that caught him by surprise. >> steve: i don't think he wanted to talk about that 'cause he has a lot more to do, he said. >> gretchen: he said he would be a teacher. >> brian: no openings. all the cut backs. >> steve: oh, that explains it. 28 minutes before the top of the hour. and we've got a fox news alert. live pictures coming in now from the united nations where later this morning, the president is set to address the general assembly, screen left. meantime, mitt romney will address the clinton global initiative here in new york city about a half an hour later. dueling politicians. ny reporter is live at the u.n. with more. good morning to you, robert. >> good morning to you and good morning, everyone. president obama will be addressing the general assembly here around 10:00 o'clock this morning. he's expected to dissuade iran from pursuing its nuclear weapons program and going to be addressing the recent violence in the middle east that came
5:34am
after the release of that video that some perceived as anti-american. you'll recall that four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya, died in a horrific attack in libya earlier this month. according to an excerpt from the president's speech that has already been released, the president later this morning will say, quote, there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. republican presidential candidate mitt romney has criticized the president's handling of the aftermath of that attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya and romney spoke about that yesterday on the campaign trail. >> he said the developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. [ laughter ] yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 people have
5:35am
been killed in syria. we have tumult in pakistan and of course, iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see! >> we're going to hear dueling politicians, as you guys put it, today and then tomorrow here at the u.n., iranian president ahmadinejab will be speaking and the timing is interesting because tomorrow, as you may know, is yom kippur, which is the holiest day on the calendar for jews. that's the latest live from outside the u.n. this morning, robert moses, fox news, back to you. >> gretchen: all right. >> steve: thank you very much for the live report from the united nations general assembly. >> gretchen: china putting its first aircraft carrier into service today. it's a refurbished soviet ship. this all happening at a time when japan and other countries in the region have expressed concern about china's growing naval strength. china and japan involved in a
5:36am
fight over disputed islands in the east china sea. >> brian: got a 7-year-old boy nearly died after pharmacy accident gave him methadone. this guy's name is adrien hernandez. he stopped breathing after taking what he thought was ritalin. his mom rushed him to the hospital in the bronks where doctors discovered the pills were actually methadone. the worst part, it's happened before. pharmacists say the two pills look different and the names both begin with meth. the boy's family is suing the pharmacy. is that an excuse? >> steve: apparently so. it's a story we told but yesterday a. plan to give the morning after pill to girls as young as 14. 13 in new york city schools. now we're hearing from parents without their parents' permission. >> encourage them to do what they shouldn't be doing right away. they're high school students, it's not right. >> parents should be involved in that stuff because they never know. their kids be out, they thinking they're going to school and they might be out doing other things. >> steve: yep. the program allows parents to
5:37am
opt out their daughters. but only one to 2% of the parents have done that. that is crazy. >> brian: the calls to bring back regular nfl refs sure to heat up after last night's game. russell wilson back to thrill. the hail mary. will they complete the pass? the refs say so. the interception really in my mind. the replacement refs were split. they went up to the booth and after a long wait, the seahawks get the win. both teams played very well. the seahawks were in this all throughout. to me, it was the packer ball, the wide receiver comes in second, therefore, it should be the packer interception. i understand if they both have equal possession, it goes to the offense. meanwhile, bad news because there is no break yet in the negotiations with the real life refs. troy aikman tweeting, these games are a joke. lebron saying, i simply just
5:38am
love the nfl too much to see these mistakes. i'm sick, like i just played for the packers. he evidently was an outstanding football player. >> steve: that's right. >> gretchen: she we want from nurse to doctor during her seasons as abbey on "er." now she returns as a powerful self-mid millionaire on "the good wife." >> you have someone work at your firm that i read about, someone in litigation? >> yes. will gardener. >> no. that woman that stood by her husband. she's a fourth year associate. >> i read an interview with her. >> she's on the reorganization committee. >> great. have her call me. >> steve: yes. have her call. look is calling here today, morera tierny. you play a self-made billionaire from the semiconductor business. so is that just good method acting or did cbs give you, here is $10 million just so you know
5:39am
what it's like? >> they gave -- just for a week. so i could feel it and then i had to give it back. >> gretchen: how do you compare this role to what you were doing on "er"? >> very different. >> steve: different wardrobe. >> different wardrobe. more make-up and jewelry. i'm a little bit of a wild card. >> gretchen: wild card? >> yes. which is nice for me. >> steve: to be dealt with. >> yes, exactly. so she's not exactly what she seems. it's fun for me. >> gretchen: i'll have to continue watching. >> brian: did you have a role in pitching the series? is this the image you had? >> no, they conceived of it. no, it was all the kings thought it up and presented it. i did what they said. >> steve: you are a breast cancer survivor and i know you're involved with myths or facts campaign. but the story about when you discovered, you went in for a lump and what did they tell you and the way they told you?
5:40am
>> oh, it was very awkward because the radiologist, i went in for a lump and i got a mammogram and sonogram, whatever, and you sort of know something is up because they keep asking to you stay and everyone else gets to go. so i finally went in to the room and this man was there and he said, oh, you are marra tierny. and he starts talking to me and i was wondering what was going on. and he said, oh, yes, it looks like cancer. >> steve: did he put up the x-ray as if you're supposed to read it? >> yes. >> steve: you're an actress! >> i know. it was very -- it's funny now. it was not funny at the time. >> gretchen: you had a mastectomy. >> yes. >> gretchen: and you are now in remission. >> yes. yeah, i guess. yeah. i'm cancer free. >> gretchen: so tell me about the myth or facts campaign. >> i'm working with the campaign called amgen on this campaign to
5:41am
help raise awareness for people who have been diagnosed with cancer and have to undergo chemotherapy as part of their treatment. and i'm just trying to share a little bit of what scared me to hopefully help other people get as much information as they can, educate themselves as much as they can, ask their doctors as many questions as they can so you can sort of just take charge of your treatment. >> steve: that's great. if people would like more information, go to our web site, we'll connect to you your web site. >> thank you very much. >> steve: congratulations on another season at the "the good wife." >> thank you. >> gretchen: did you see "60 minutes" this past weekend, the part where president obama suggested that romney just wants to do create another war. is the president too busy being a candidate to be the president? we're going to focus on that and debate that coming up. >> brian: forget about what you heard about sarah palin because her brother and dad are here to he veal the real sarah. they're here live

>> steve: you are looking live at the united nations general assembly on the east side of manhattan where president obama is set to arrive shortly. he will address the assembly at 10:00 o'clock eastern time. meanwhile, he is promoting his tough stance on terror. >> let's see what i've done since i came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al-qaeda. they've been decimated in the fatah. we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy and it's one that the american people largely agree with. so if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> steve: where did that come from? is he suggesting mitt romney is a war monger? let's turn to peter johnson, jr. who joins us each and every day
5:46am
with reaction to that. what's he talking about? >> i don't know what he's talking about and joe biden made a similar reference with regard to syria and iran in his democratic convention speech. i think it's designed to say that any criticism of the president on his foreign policy is designed to bring us into a war, that a lot of opponents of the president who are saying that the weakness and vascillation in the middle east are the best bets to promote a war in the middle east. so as we're about to hear the president's speech this morning, we know there is a civil war in syria. we know that iran is on the precipice of a nuke leer weapon. we know libya claimed the life of our ambassador and three others. we understand that israel is concerned about our alliance with them at this point. and the middle east is in flames. and is in a state of i guess the summer after the arab spring. we see in the "new york times" that there was a lot of concern in the state department and the united states government about how president obama handled the
5:47am
mubarak transition in egypt, whether we did it too fast and whether we did it in a way that hurt our nation. we're also understanding, and i'm having concern, is the president too busy campaigning to be the president? what an opportunity -- >> steve: too busy to talk to world leaders. >> what an opportunity yesterday and today to talk with world leaders. we know he saw them at a cocktail party, but is that a substitute for a robust foreign policy? could we be asking pakistan about their policies? could we be asking afghanistan about why our troops are being killed? could we press mr. morsi why egypt is indicting american citizens for exercising their first amendment rights? could we speak to israel and mr. netanyahu and say yes, we're with us? seems like opportunities lost. campaign big on the mind. foreign policy, not so big. we're going to hear the speech. i looked at parts of it. a loft generalities. no tough stance, though, saying back off, middle east. we're doing the best we can. we want to be friends, but
5:48am
you've got to act like our friend, too. >> steve: he's going to stand on the foreign policy he's already established. >> he will. >> steve: it will be 45 minutes from now. you'll see it here on the fox news channel. straight ahead, how did sarah palin become sarah palin? the woman she is? her dad and her brother join us live next with thermacare heatwraps. thermacare works differently. it's the only wrap with patented heat cells that penetrate deep to relax, soothe, and unlock tight muscles. for up to 16 hours of relief, try thermacare. oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor.

>> gretchen: first gaining national attention as john mccain's running mate in 2008, becoming an inspiration to the tea party, sarah palin has made her mark on america's political landscape. >> steve: but it hasn't always been easy. palin has faced her share of criticism along the way. that's one of the reasons her father and her brother are writing this brand-new book, colts out today called "our sarah, made in alaska." chuck heath senior, known as big
5:52am
chuck, and chuck heath, junior, who we will refer to as junior, join us live. good morning. >> good morning. >> steve: i like in the beginning of your book, you talk about how when you and sarah and your family were growing up up in alaska, you grew up poor, but you would see like the "brady bunch" on television and assumed that's how people in the lower 48 lived. you didn't want that kind of life. >> well, it was just so foreign to us. we watched that show with awe, thinking, is that the way the rest of the world really lives? >> brian: astro turf in everybody's backyard. what was the childhood like for them? >> well, we were very poor, very, very poor. we lived off the land, more or less. all our meat was meat we -- animals we shot. >> brian: you want lunch, go shoot a moose? >> oh, yeah. yeah. moose, deer. >> steve: you must have had a big freezer. >> yeah. still do. >> gretchen: what were the important values that you taught
5:53am
your daughter, that she's carried through with her in her life today? >> well, she got strict discipline from me and she got a loft spiritual guidance from her mother. and her mother was a great influence on her, spiritually and her honesty and what have you. give mom credit for that. >> the other big thing with dad was work ethic. if you wanted something, you worked for it. that went all the way through college, through all four of us graduated college and we all paid our own ways. that was just expected. >> steve: how many books have been written about your sister? >> over 100. >> steve: how many of them have been accurate? >> i would say three. one guy wrote a book strictly from what he saw on the news and saw in the paper. never talked to her, never talked to anyone. >> steve: so this is one of the reasons why you guys are coming out right now to essentially defend your daughter and your sister, and also tell about the real woman you know. >> yeah, that's true. we've been listening for four years.
5:54am
we've been listening to the media tear her down and other people and they distorted her image. they don't know that much about her. and we thought it would be great to get a family and friends perspective. so we have 46 of her closest friends and family quoted in the book and just lots of stories that have never been told. >> brian: what would you like to see her do next? >> you know, we don't know what her game plan is. that's the number one question asked of us. what's her game plan? we don't know. i hope she keeps going and she will. she's very unpredictable. we found that out since the second grade. >> steve: really? >> she'll rise up. >> steve: what was she doing in second grade? >> she started reading the newspaper in the second grade. i've been reading the sports page and she'd grab the main section and read main section and ask me questions on it in second grade. >> gretchen: why has she been so eviscerated? >> what do you think?
5:55am
she's a threat to some people that can't believe that a pretty young woman could be that successful. how do you raise five kids? how do you hold a full-time job, keep up this strict running regime, work 15, 16 hours a day? >> brian: and be a republican. >> and have christian beliefs, too. i don't know what it is about that formula that just infuriates some people. >> steve: it really irked the left. all right. can you guys stick around? we want to talk more with the heaths about the daughter, the sister, sarah palin. back in two minutes ♪ i'd like to thank eating right,
